There Are No Words for ‘Batman: The Dark Knight’ #27

The latest issue of Batman: The Dark Knight somehow kicks even more ass than the movies. How much ass, you ask? Happy to tell you, using our scientific metrics of ass-measurement. But before we do that, you should know one thing: this preview has no dialogue because dialogue would only detract from the level of ass-kickery we are about to unleash. In fact, the only reason we’re writing this intro paragraph is because if we don’t get this paragraph to clear that ad box ad to the right, our site’s stylesheet will automatically shrink down the cover below. Do you think Batman’s just going to sit there and take it? Do you even know who Batman is? What are you, stupid?

Of course he won’t. It’ll be a fight to the death — and not Batman’s. When Batman fights CSS, the entire internet breaks down. And now that we’ve made that plain, enjoy this terrific preview from writer Gregg Hurwitz and artist Alberto Ponticelli.


These goons will tell this story for the rest of their lives, but Batman will have to be reminded what incident you’re talking about by next week.


“Hi, GCPD here–we had reports of an elite army of mercenaries patrolling this property with SMGs? Yeah, see, it’s just the bank owes this decrepit warehouse, so if you guys could just go ahead and move on somewhere, that’d be grrrreaaat, thanks.”


This comic has no words, because from a strict engineering perspective, Batman is kicking ass so efficiently there is no room in the narrative for anything else.




There’s absolutely no way that explosion didn’t kill at least five of those guys.


Now enjoy a Scribblenauts variant cover while explaining to your children explosions kill the people they touch.

Don’t miss what comes next in Batman: The Dark Knight #27!

Seriously, guys--you are not going to believe what happens at the end of this preview.

Seriously, guys–you are not going to believe what happens at the end of this preview.

You know, Hurwitz and Batman: The Dark Knight are really on a streak of Batman as he was meant to be. Proof? Our last preview: You Won’t Believe What Happens in ‘Batman: The Dark Knight’ #22.
